What is Renewable Energy?

According to the Energy Information Administration, renewable energy comes from sources that are naturally replenished. These energy sources, also called “clean energy” or “green power”, are virtually endless. Dominion Energy uses renewable resources such as solar, wind, hydroelectric and biomass to produce energy.

Leveraging Clean, Renewable Resources

The development of renewable energy is a priority for Dominion Energy. Dominion Energy's current renewable energy portfolio includes more than 3,100 megawatts of clean energy in ten different states. When fully operational, our combined resources can supply power to more than 775,000 typical households at peak output.

Impact on Our Customers

We don't profit based on what fuels are used to supply energy to our customers but we support increasing these clean energy sources in order to diversify our energy grid. A varied energy grid will ensure steady rates for our consumers, which is a top priority.

Renewable Energy Standards

Dominion Energy has committed to meeting renewable energy standards set by policymakers in Virginia and North Carolina. With our 2.5 million electric customers in mind, we have two specific and measurable standards to pair increasing percentages of our customer sales with renewable energy certificates produced from renewable generation that we generate ourselves or procure from others:

  1. In Virginia, start with 14% in 2021 and increase to 100% of customer sales paired with renewable energy by 2045 and thereafter.
  2. In North Carolina, achieve 12.5% of customer sales paired with renewable energy by 2021 and thereafter.

Dominion Energy supports these standards through existing renewable resources, developing new renewable energy and purchasing renewable energy certificates.
